This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

Betsy - I am sorry for the loss of your mum and husband. I can relate. My husband would have turned 64 this Friday (October 24). I am dreading spending it alone. My plans to go away for the weekend have been changed to Saturday departure. Trying to find friends who are not working to spend the day with. I am sure The Lord will make sure I am not alone. Blessings and prayers for you and others on this site.

Hello to all on this forum,  Wanted to check in and let you guys know it has been almost 6 months since my hubby left on his Journey to Heaven.  There are still days when I find mind wondering back and then I begin to remember the good times we had these last fifteen years.  The good times are so much more comforting and brings a smile quickly. It takes time for every one to go through this grieving period, but we do get there with our Faith and asking for guidance daily.  I am facing the Holidays coming up and my husband was born on Dec 25 and I am so hoping that I can get past this day with some  smiles,  giggles because of the day he was born, had to pull a couple tricks on him from year to year.  Just know he is keeping a watch over me and keeping me going down the right path.  Waiting for the day I can close my eyes, leave my family and loved ones, and "Go Home to live with the Father &  Son". Then there will never be any more good-byes .  What a Joyous event to look forward to  for me.  Love ya all and May GOD Bless each of you.

Mary M, I lost my husband almost 5 years ago from blood cancer and a failed stem cell transplant, and I still miss him every day. He was only 43, I was 45 when he died. October 31st will be the 5th anniversary of his passing and already I'm dreading it, especially now having just lost my Mom less than three months ago. I feel like I lost the two people in this world who truly and completely loved me.

Jayne, I am also so sorry for your loss. My Mom died almost 3 months ago and she was also my best friend. I am completely lost without her. I am still in shock. She had liver cancer, diagnosed only a week before she died. We had her home on hospice for 5 days and she slipped away so fast that my siblings and I are all left feeling like a tornado swept through, leaving us in the aftermath. My body fell apart, as I was recently diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Colitis, and lost almost 20 pounds and a lot of blood since her death. I was her caregiver, too, and we were planning for her to move in with me before all this happened. I am totally and completely lost. Prayers and deepest sympathy to you.

Jayne I am sorry for your loss. It is difficult losing a parent especially if you were really close. I lost my dad and it really messed me up. I ended up quitting my job at that time because I couldn't get my head straight. For me losing my husband was worse but I do understand how difficult it is to lose a parent. There are others on here who have gone through what you are feeling now. I am sure they will reach out to you too. Hugs and prayers

I have reading about so much heartache that the members have posted for me the days empty my husband died from lung cancer feb this year like losing my right arm

my days now consist of hate hate to get up hate to go to bed hate watching TV because something will remind me he is no longer here Once a very happy person I now find no joy in life  I do know after reading these stories that others can feel this way I also know that time is a great healer  and I do try to look at the positive side of life and some times that is very hard so I take heart in words that were once said to me "Without death how can we appreciate their life"

It has been a while since I have posted. First let me say how sorry I am for your losses. My heart goes out to you all. It's now been 2.5 years since I lost my husband and still I miss him. There are still days I cry for seemingly no reason that anybody with me can figure out. A song on the radio, something somebody says can have me in tears. It doesn't get easier the more time passes, I just get better at not showing how I really feel. Holding onto my faith, the love and support of family and friends has helped me keep going. I kept a journal the first year and recently read through what I had written, and yes cried my eyes out. But it made me realize how much I have changed. I will never be the person I was, but I am more able to live with the person I have become. Maybe I have finally reached the acceptance stage of grief. I don't know. I do know I have passed the anger and guilt stages.

For those of you beginning the grief journey, remember you are not alone. There are many that can identify with what you are feeling, the struggles that need to be overcome. I have come to know many on this site who helped me through my worse days just by letting me pour my heart out without judgement but supporting me with love and compassion. Blessings and prayers come out to all of you.
